Indianapolis, Indiana: Three Dinosaurs Breaking Out Of Children's Museum

They appear to emerge out of the shattered museum wall, ready to tear up Indy. Perhaps it's proof that even dinosaurs can take only so much.

Three Dinosaurs Breaking Out Of Children's Museum

Nice little detour. We went during the COVID pandemic when we drove by and since museum was closed we had rock star parking and hopped back on the interstate.

Dinosaur break-in.

Great for a drive by photo-op -- even better for a brief visit. Nice Children's Museum and very cool, visual attraction.

Dino exhibit.

Three Dinosaurs Breaking Out Of Children's Museum

Very fun! The Dino exhibit is great! Don't bother with the planetarium show "Cosmic Canopy" unless you have kids with you. Very basic educational show about basic planets and constellations. Food Court closes down about an hour before the museum does (4 pm food court, 5 pm museum). Barbie exhibit (temp?) was sweet (for the chicks...).

Three Dinosaurs Breaking Out Of Children's Museum

If you visit the Children's Museum just north Of downtown Indianapolis, you will see this awesome sight -- three huge Dinosaurs busting out of the side of the building! And the Children's Museum itself is a pretty cool place.
